"Stress" - Odd Børre
The Norwegian Final was held on March 3rd at the Centralteatret in Oslo, hosted by Jan Voigt. Each of the songs were performed twice (by different performers) - once with a small band and once with an orchestra. Although the original winner was "Jag har aldri vært så glad i no'en som deg", the composer withdrew the song when it was accused of being similar to "Summer holiday" by Cliff Richard.
